Made this recipe yesterday. After reading other reviews, I decreased the amount of flour to 2 3/4 cups, and I also decreased the cooking time to 45 minutes because my oven tends to cook hotter than most. Otherwise, I followed directions exactly as written. The first problem I had was that the cake would not release from the bundt pan, even though it had been thoroughly greased and even after following directions for cooling. I tried to use a plastic spatula to help the cake release, but it was stuck to the top of the pan and ended up tearing when it came out. Regardless, I figured it would probably taste good, even if it wasn't pretty, but the cake is just ok. The chocolate flavor really doesn't come through, and even though I decreased the amount of flour, it came out very dry. Definitely need a glass of milk to drink with it. I think the recipe could call for some oil to make the cake the cake more moist, and I think next time I might substitute baking chocolate for the cocoa powder.
